Max lives with his wife and their son in New York. He has some land but not enough to raise a steer. He does have a garden and a pizza oven. Harvest talks about how he attempts to learn how to make his own cheese, raise his own beef, make his own hot dogs, and instill those values into his son. I enjoyed learning about the different types of cheese Max tried to make but I had no interest in running into the kitchen and trying my hand. Same goes for the making of the hot dogs. Fascinating but not something I want to try.
Overall, Harvest was an interesting read. Especially for the food obsessed. Others who shared their thoughts on Harvest: Popdust, Real Food Kitchens, and The Iron You.
This is my third read for Foodies Read Challenge.
